    Never too soon to look at top prospects for next year's draft or our next QB

    With the notion of getting a head start on the year-long process, here's a look at the top 16 senior NFL prospects for the 2010 draft class, in order of when they might get drafted:
    6. Colt McCoy, QB, Texas (6-3, 210)

    The savvy signal-caller has all the intangibles to be an outstanding pro. Though he doesn't have the strongest of arms, McCoy's instincts, anticipation and awareness allow him to pick apart defenses with an assortment of accurate throws. In addition, he has the leadership skills to command respect from his teammates. With checkmarks in all the right areas, McCoy enters the season as the top-rated senior prospect at the position.

    Unlikely we will get a look at Colt. I figure at worst we go 8-8 and end up in the middle of round 1. No McCoy and no Stafford unless we trade up.
    We could be looking Tebow square in the face ... of course if his pro day and/or combine raises any red flags, he will slip out of the first round, maybe even out of the second.
    Going to be VERY interesting to see what we do if T-Jack and/or Sage look bad this year.

    Only in Minnesota, do the fans start looking forward to next years draft before this years training camp even begins.

    and just say no to Tebow.

    When you have not had a franchise QB since Tark it is never too soon to be prepared.
    ;D

    I look at Tebow and don't see a franchise QB.
    I look at tebow and see guy who can run who has a bit of an arm.
    I'm going to go on record to say Tebow will not amount to a franchise QB in the league.
    He will be as useful as Seneca Wallace.

    I pretty much agree. I would rather have McCoy or Bradford.

    Re: Never too soon to look at top prospects for next year's draft or our next QB

    I would be happy in my pants if we got Colt.
    That kid's a winner.
    I've watched a ton of Horns games, and he flat out makes things happen.
    He WAS the 'horns offense last year.
    Leading rusher, and he wasn't even a running quarterback...he was scrambling.
    He was tossing to Quan Cosby and Shipley, solid college receivers, but not exactly something to write home about.

    If he falls to us, it'd be foolish to pass up on him.
    He completed over 70% of his passes, iirc, and I've read about how much NFL scouts prefer to have quarterbacks play their senior year, and how their passing percentage is the best statistic to evaluate NFL capability (generally speaking).
    His arm isn't weak, either.
    It's not a Stafford cannon, and he wont get on his knees and launch it through the uprights like Boller, but who cares?
    He can make the NFL throws.
    Matt Ryan doesn't have a cannon, either.

    He won't fall to us at 32. We would need to trade up.
